Sail Date: Aug 2011
Cabin: Superior Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony

Our 35th wedding anniversary was to be celebrated with a cruise starting and ending in Venice, Italy. Royal Caribbean's Voyager of the Seas was so bad, we have vowed never to cruise again. I selected our cabin specifically so we would have maximum space and privacy and that we did. However, our neighbors smoked so much that we essentially could not sit on our balcony the entire time of our cruise. There was nothing RCCL could do because their policy is to allow smoking on cabin balconies. The decor of the ship was very, very tacky. The staff was only "fake friendly" in most cases. The buffet restaurant window ledges were filthy dirty with food crumbs, some of which appeared to have been there for quite some time. At breakfast one morning, my husband took a spoonful of prunes and pulled an empty sugar packet wrapper from his mouth. They attempted to extort money from you, much more so than other cruise lines, even charging for fresh orange juice at breakfast. The quality of items in their shops was substandard and the prices, billed as tax and duty free were no bargain. I purchased a Fossil watch on-line directly from the Fossil web site for less money than they were charging on board for their "duty and tax free" watches. The shows were only mediocre with the exception of a Celine Dion impersonator) and the ship's cruise director's was less than charming. I will say, the food was good.

Cabin Review

Superior Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony

Cabin D1

Lots of storage space, huge balcony with lots of privacy. Very quiet unless your balcony neighbors are partying on their balcony to the left. Carpeting and chair upholstery need to be redone as they look dirty. Bathroom good size. But all for naught if you don't like breathing second-hand cigarette smoke because your neighbors can ruin the balcony experience for you because they can and do smoke there a lot.
